EDITH WHARTON’S THE BUNNER SISTERS: A STAGED READINGLenox, 4 - 5:30 p.m.
|THURSDAY - OCTOBER 12, 2017|
After its successful world premiere production in San Francisco, Edith Wharton’s The Bunner Sisters—adapted by Richard Alleman and directed by Anthony Newfield—will have a reading at The Mount. Inspired by Wharton’s novella, the play depicts the lives of two unmarried sisters living and working as seamstresses in a tenement in Lower Manhattan in the 1880s. When an unattached man enters the picture, their complacent existence is upended. Sensitively adapted for the stage, The Bunner Sisters takes audiences on a dramatic journey to a not so innocent age, with many of the same problems we face today—from income inequality to the precarious status of women. $10 general; free for Mount members

Basketball, block parties, traffic stops — Keith A. Wallace takes us on a ride through North Philly on a night he won’t forget. A searing solo theater piece charged with pain, poetry, and laughter, The Bitter Game
blends verse, prose and sh*t-talkin’ into a stirring commentary that begs the question: what does it mean to survive while Black in America' Wallace draws on his own youth in Philadelphia to examine the effects of racism, the question of excessive force used by police, and the value of Black lives in this country.
